Perhaps it's because I'm Canadian that I chose hockey tape ;) But they sure do work! Because of the wrapping method though, I'm sure you could use a number of other tapes.

Step 1: Materials and measuring
- Any hanger (I like wooden hangers because there's more area to apply grip to)
- Hockey tape (or try another type of tape that has some texture, smooth tapes will only moderately help your cause)
- Something to measure with. Ruler, tape measure, piece of string etc.
If you're like me, we want to make this neat, so I prefer to measure and mark off where I will put the tape to make sure everything is symmetrical. Make the grips as short, or as long as you like, just leave a bit of room in the corners so you can comfortably wrap that section.
